Epic Storytelling for Schools

Engaging Author Visits that Empower Learners for Life

Neuroscience tells us that every child has a natural dispensation for engaging with stories.
But every teacher knows some children find this hard to access.

Epic Author Visits are a proven way to help every child connect with their innate creativity, confidence, and love for reading.

When EU Lifelong Learning put our storytelling through a controlled experiment in 2013, they found it help pupils perform an average of 26% better in standardised tests.

An Approach that’s Fun, Memorable, and Effective

We didn’t get where we are by studying storytelling academically. We are storytellers first and foremost, making us experts in our craft. And with two decades’ experience working with teachers and learners, we’ve plugged the gaps in existing methods and perfected our own.

Recent Success Stories

“I was particularly impressed because my class are quite young, and some of the stories are quite long, but despite that they were really engaged in them. The way they’re written brought the children’s imaginations alive.”

Helen – Teacher, Pupils aged 4 to 6

“You really know how to keep a kid’s attention! Your storytelling is in no way condescending. Your characters are problem solvers, and having heroes who think their way out of problems is very good for a child’s confidence. We never have to worry that your stories aren’t going to have depth, or might be too frightening. You don’t write to stir up emotions, you write to stir up thoughts, and that is a valuable difference between what you do and what a lot of the ‘big names’ do.”>

Dan, father of 8-year-old Elsie

“Children, parents, and teachers all benefited. I wish more institutions will use Epic Tales to develop more curricula.”
